"Japan’s Defense Ministry plans to acquire by March 2022 standoff missiles with a range of about 500 kilometers that can attack targets from outside the ranges of enemy missiles, according to sources. The acquisition is in line with the medium-term defense buildup program for fiscal 2019-2023. The new standoff missiles, expected to have the longest range among all the Self-Defense Forces’ current systems, will be mounted on F-35 cutting-edge stealth fighters, the sources said....

...According to the ministry and other sources, Japan plans to acquire Norway’s JSM anti-surface and anti-ship missiles. Development has been completed, with delivery slated for mid-March 2022. The JSM can be mounted inside the body of the F-35, enabling anti-surface and anti-ship attacks that make good use of the aircraft’s stealth capabilities...."

Japan to begin receiving Joint Strike Missiles from April 2021
09 Sep 2020 Kosuke Takahashi

"The missiles, which have been designed to fit in the internal weapons bay of the F-35A, have a range of about 500 km and can thus be launched from a stand-off distance.

In November 2019 manufacturer Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace announced that it had signed a NOK450 million (USD49.2 million) follow-on contract to provide additional JSMs for the JASDF’s F-35As. The move came after Kongsberg announced in March 2019 that it had signed a contract to provide an undisclosed number of “initial” JSMs for Japan’s F-35A fighters.

In fiscal year 2018 (FY 2018) Tokyo allocated JPY2.2 billion (USD20.8 million) to the JASDF for the acquisition of air-launched stand-off missiles, including JPY2.16 billion for the purchase of JSMs. It also budgeted JPY7.9 billion in FY 2019, and JPY13.6 billion in FY 2020 for JSM procurement...." [then info on missiles for F-15s]

KONGSBERG PLACES RF SENSOR ORDER WITH BAE SYSTEMS AUSTRALIA [2 page PDF of article attached]
29 OCT 2020 JULIAN KERR

"BAE Systems Australia (BAES) has won a full rate production order from Norway’s Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace for passive radio frequency (RF) sensors that will significantly enhance the capability of the precision-guided, stand-off Joint Strike Missile (JSM)....

...The order followed a set of flight trials that had demonstrated the successful integration of the electronics systems into the missile, which can engage targets on sea or land at ranges of up to 200 km....

...Although the BAES release did not provide any details of the capability improvements, the company disclosed in April 2017 that an electronic support measure (ESM) receiver being provided to Kongsberg for incorporation on the JSM “will feature an additional land-attack and littoral attack capability.”

Kongsberg revealed at the same time that in addition to the missile’s existing advanced imaging infrared seeker, the RF seeker sensor would enable the JSM to locate targets on the basis of their electronic signature...."

Canadians are going for NSM?

[09 Nov 2020] To our knowledge, it is the first time that an official Royal Canadian Navy lists the NSM as the main anti-surface warfare (ASuW) weapon for the CSC. Contacted by Naval News, an industry source said Kongsberg was close to finalizing the deal.


https://www.navalnews.com/naval-news/20 ... -frigates/

- We also register that the Canadian Navy has officially issued information where NSM is included in the equipment of the new frigates. No contract has been entered into and we do not have the opportunity to comment on this, KDA writes in an email to Teknisk Ukeblad on Friday morning.

First of all, thanks for the info regarding the Canadian Surface Combatant Ship.

Yes, it seems that the Canadians are indeed going for the NSM since that info is indeed official. Alternatively that factsheet can be download from the official Canadian Navy website here:
http://www.navy-marine.forces.gc.ca/a$$ ... 11_web.pdf

To be honest the NSM makes perfect sense to me since it can be carried in the same way and in similar launchers as the Harpoon which the Canadian Navy currently operates and it has the same (but better) capabilities compared to the Harpoon Block II (including land attack). At the same time it's worth to note that the Harpoon missile is getting obsolete so the NSM would be IMO the logical replacement.

But WOW! This is the first time in many year (many decades??) that I'm really impressed with a Canadian military procurement! That ship is (or will be) 'almost insanely' armed to the teeth! This is quite of a departure from the traditional Canadian 'military philosophy' which is to equip their assets such as warships with minimal armament/weaponry.

Now, Canada only needs to select the F-35! :D
“Active stealth” is what the ignorant nay sayers call ECM and pretend like it’s new.
